Hazards Planning Center
Planning Information Exchange
With a new award agreement granted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the successful Planning Information Exchange (PIE) webinar series has been extended for two additional years, starting October 1, 2016. APA will continue to act as the lead in an agreement with FEMA, with the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) as a partner. The quarterly webinars will continue to revolve around four central themes:
- The information exchange focuses on all hazards.
- The information exchange focuses primarily on mitigation planning but also its connections with recovery planning and preparedness.
- APA and ASFPM act as co-conveners of all planning exchange webinars. This means that both organizations will use their respective web-based meeting platforms to set up, register, drive, facilitate, record, and provide technical support for all webinar meetings.
- Planning exchange hosts select topics and commit to moderate, present, and lead the planning exchange webinars.

Moving toward plan implementation is often a difficult step for communities, especially with regard to flood hazard mitigation. However, ensuring that plans are well-integrated, policies are mutually supportive, and codes and ordinances align with community goals all play a major role in a community's aspirations of resilience.

Stern, deputy director for planning, engagement, and design with the District of Columbia Office of Planning, and Seth Jensen, principal planner with the Lamoille County (Vermont) Planning Commission, discuss how their communities have used tools such as plan-making, zoning and subdivision ordinances, and locally integrated policies to actualize flood disaster resilience in a land use context.
Participants will learn :
- How to adapt plans for on the ground realities
- Specific land use policies that promote flood resilience, and
- How to coordinate within regions and local governments to realize long-term community resilience
